HC Deb 21 June 1915 vol 72 cc925-6
53. Colonel YATE

asked whether, in the consideration of the question of profits on Government contracts, consideration will be given to the formulation of some scheme by which the workman will be enabled to have a share in the extra profits that may be earned by any firm on Government contracts?


My right hon. Friend is not at present in a position to say more than that the whole question of the limitation of profits is receiving consideration.

Colonel YATE

Is it not most important to try and establish identity of interest between employer and employés in Government contracts, and cannot this be done by some system of co-operation and allotment of profits to workers?


The whole matter is under close consideration.
